Bottle, by Bill McNamara
Add to album

This stoneware bottle was made by the Scottish artist Bill McNamara in 1979. It was inspired by rock strata and dry-stone wall textures.

The flat bottle with a narrow neck has a rough unglazed surface with press mould coils and slabs.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
